quote are swept up in that as well. you've heard obama say both today and previously, well, we don't listen to americans' communications. we're not listening to your phone calls, not reading your e-mails. some of that data is inside this so-called 702 series of databases and this loophole that we disclosed today that we sort of gave the evidence that senator wyden's been sort of nodding about and sort of indicating about shows that under certain conditions starting in 2011 the nsa was given the authority to search for u.s. person identifiers,

war on the affordable health care is getting hard core. urging citizens to burn their obama care draft cards. of course, there is no such thing as an obama care draft card. you've got to print your own out and pretend and burn that. what if i told you the science behind it might change the world and help save the planet at the same time? a full discussion of the future of food is coming up. but we begin tonight with breaking news in the middle east north africa and southeast asia where 19 u.s. embassies and consulates are closed tonight due to continued fears of an imminent terror attack. >> we face an ongoing threat from al qaeda and its affiliates. there are individuals and organizations out there that are focused on doing the united states and the american people harm as well as doing harm to our people. >> the embassy and consulate closings span across 21 countries were initially announced on friday along with a worldwide travel alert to u.s. citizens abroad. today, jay carney did his best to hold specifics, but he did confirm the threat is coming from the al qaeda in the ara

at the time, it was a big scandal. people thought they knew what it meant. president obama was secretly telling dmitri medvedev to ignore all the election year politics, it's just politics. after that, the u.s. and russia could be great friends. maybe that wasn't it, maybe the flexibility he was speaking about was a great insult. a yo mama joke, perhaps, that would better explain what has happened since. relations are deteriorating at a very rapid pace. the president cancelled a planned meeting with russian president putin. the first time any american president has cancelled a publicly announced visit to russia since the end of the cold w war. the white house explained the cancellation including, missile defense, and arms control, they cited russia's decision to thumb the u.s. in the eye by granting edward snowden temporary asylum. >> i was point issed because even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or alleged law breaker in their country. we evaluate it and try to work with them, they didn't do

the fight over obama care takes a recess. the summer of the angry anti-obama care town hall is back. but unlike last time this story played out, it is republicans who are feeling the heat. >>> plus why the federal government needs to rethink the science around medical marijuana. all that is ahead. >>> but tonight we begin with the u.s. and russia relations in a downward and dangerous spiral. today white house spokesperson jay carney spent most of his daily briefing fielding questions about russia. the president announced a rare news conference for tomorrow. we expect he will answer a flood of questions about the increasingly chilly relations between the two countries. now, when you hear the u.s. and russia are bickering, when you hear their relationship is deteriorating or on the rocks, i want you to keep in mind, these two countries, our country and russia, still hold 94% of the world's nuclear weapons. 94%. you can see it on this graph. the chart comes from a plough share fund using estimates from hans christianson, the federation of american scientists. if you look over there on

community that any person put forward by president obama ever has. it will be vocal and outspoken because he has chosen to be vocal and outspoken about racial profiling. i'm not sure that, frankly, he really believes in this. at the very least, he was against racial profiling before he was for if. he thought stop and frisk was dubious before he became its biggest champion. and -- >> well, he's definitely -- there's been a trajectory. there's been some movement. i'm willing to grant. ben jealous from the naacp. thank you so much. i appreciate it. >> thank you, chris. >>> joining me now, ryan grim, washington bureau chief for the "washington post." ray kelly, head of new york city's police department, which is a big job, on sunday shows talking about stop and frisk as a central issue, and i'm just curious, what was your read of the political subtext of those appearances? >> you know, he's in a difficult position here because, you know, he's been floated now for a long time as a likely pick here. i know obama tends to leave people out there for a long time. it happened to susan rice. it happ

indiscriminate use of chemical weapons. but make no mistake, president obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. >> there must be accountability. earlier today, a six-car convoy carrying u.n. weapons inspectors was attacked by sniper fire. no one was hurt, but the u.n. team was forced to return to a government checkpoint. the team replaced their damaged car, later proceeded to the damascus suburb to conduct their investigation according to ban ki-moon. the team visited two hospitals and interviewed witnesses, survivors and doctors and collected samples. last week's attack killed 355 people and about 3,600 more survivors were treated for neurotoxic symptoms, according to doctors without borders. secretary kerry made clear today the consensus has been achieved among intelligence agencies and allies that chemical weapons were used. they were deployed by the regime and that they killed hundreds of people kerry said further information will be provided in the days ahead. kerry also note

work that remains. president obama talked about fighting the economic despairties in the country. >> this has already been noted. black unemployment has remained almost twice as high as white unemployment. latino unemployment close behind. the gap in wealth between races has not lessened, it's grown. we must remind ourselves that the measure of progress for those who marged 50 years ago was not simply those that could join ranks of millionaires. it was whether this country would admit all those willing to work hard into the ranks of a middle class life. >> former president clinton also talked about fighting back. >> we cannot be discouraged by a supreme court decision that said we don't need this critical provision of the voting rights act. a great democracy does not make it harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon. >> barriers to voting rights, to economic rights, to civil rights. these are the very real challenges we still face. but congressman john lewis, the last surviving speaker from the march on washington, reminded us that we can't lose sight of how far we've come. >>

you an article from "the new york times" that was just posted. "president obama is prepared to move ahead with a limited military strike on syria, even with the rejection of such action by britain's parliament and increasingly rest of congress and lacking anden endorsement from the united nations security council." is it legal for the president to strike syria without any kind of u.n., international or congressional backing? >> thank you, chris. let me say that the reason that we worked to send a letter with 54 members of congress, democratic members of congress, to the president, was to indicate first of all our unequivocal condemnation of the use of chemical weapons. i mean, that is something that is unacceptable, and we have to address that in a big way. however, there's no military solution, and in fact, american people deserve to have members of congress come in and debate the evidence, debate should we use force? and if we do use force, what the implications and the ramifications are. >> congresswoman, sorry, let me stop you there. i've heard members of congress talk about deb
